That's the other thing: back to back nights! In Utica. In February. Ridiculous. Have always been tickled by that.

Their early '73 travels took them to several prominent eastern cities, Philadelphia, Boston, and Baltimore among them; even Rochester and Buffalo are large compared to Utica. But they played no back-to-backers in any of those places.
In fact they NEVER did so in Syracuse or Buffalo and didn't get around to it in Rochester till '85. Go freakin' figure.
Gotta be a story there but those still alive to tell it are too burned out to have any idea. Weir can't find his shoes these days for cryin' out loud.
Oh well.

They did do a 2-night run at the University of Illinois in February '73 - another odd spot, since they generally didn't bother with Illinois outside of Chicago. Then March 15, 16 & 19 at Nassau - Nassau's understandable! (I think the 19th was added after the first two shows sold out.)

I like how in the winters, Jan/Feb, the Dead usually headed for the midwest. They must have liked seeing snow.

When the 'Fieldhouse jam' surfaced for the Jerry memorial in '95 I remember thinking,'Those guys were in a cornfield in Iowa, in February?' Nah, no way. Tapes got mislabeled or something. Sure at a spring festival ala the May Iowa appearance a few months later but not in the dead of mid-winter.

I think of those Utica gigs in connection with stops they made the previous fall in places like Kansas City, KS and Wichita. Those could not have been routine stops on whatever the rock 'n roll circuit amounted to in those days. Pretty cool (especially for those that lived there) and I've just always wanted to know more about how they came to pass.
